Sunday Tasting Class Featuring Pinot Noir

Sunday, April 3
Pinot Noir Tasting Class

from 3 – 5 pm

Pinot noir is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name may also refer to wines created predominantly from this particular grape. The name is derived from the French words for pine and black; the pine alluding to the grape variety having tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit. Pinot noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France.

We will be featuring Pinot Noir from Burgundy, and the cooler regions of California, Oregon, and Chile at our tasting Sunday. Chef Christophe Jalbert will be pairing the wines with a selection of Pâté and Rillette from Aquidneck Meat & Provisions, along with an assortment of cheeses from Milk & Honey and fresh-baked baguettes. We hope you’ll join us!

As always, reservations are required for our tasting classes, as there are limited spots available! Cost of attendance is $10, which may be applied toward any in-store purchase. Kindly call the store (401.846.7993), respond to this e-mail, or stop by to R.S.V.P. Thank you!
